Arteta reflects on deep pain ahead of West Brom clash 0

Posted on May 09, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal fans have one thing on their mind as we look ahead to their somewhat bleak future – Kroenke out, Ek in. Some are going to be interested in what happens with regards to the rest of their Premier League campaign but realistically speaking, there isn’t a whole lot left to fight for.

They’ll still battle it out with West Bromwich Albion with the intention of securing the win, but as per his interview on, manager Mikel Arteta fully understands the pain that fans and players are going through right now.

Arteta out? 0

Arsenal were knocked out of the Europa League earlier this week by Villarreal in a tie that many saw as incredibly winnable for the Gunners. Sure, they had a bit of bad luck when hitting the post through Aubameyang, but for the most part, they just didn’t look like a team that particularly wanted to be there.

Instead of making excuses we need to start getting down to the nitty gritty of why that is, and we think a large portion of the blame needs to fall at the feet of Mikel Arteta.

Arteta speaks to media after Europa League exit 0

Arsenal’s season is essentially over after they fell to another embarrassing Europa League exit last night at the Emirates. All the Gunners needed to do was register a 1-0 win, at home, in order to make it through to the final. Instead, Villarreal held on for a 0-0 draw that saw them go through 2-1 on aggregate.

The loss compounds the fact that this club is going nowhere in a hurry and as we look ahead to the future, Mikel Arteta’s future seems to be in doubt. After the game, he spoke with the media about another poor night at the office.

Forget about Unai Emery, forget about Aubameyang, because tonight is about one thing and one thing only – Arsenal beating Villarreal to reach the 2021 UEFA Europa League final. Technically speaking they only need a 1-0 win to get the job done, but in reality, they need to go out there with the intention of putting a beating on this team.

The Spaniards got the upper hand in the first leg but that away goal could change everything for the Gunners. Either way, it’s going to be a tense evening, and manager Mikel Arteta spoke about that and so much more with the media prior to kickoff.

Arteta’s biggest game amid dressing room worries 0

There can be no doubt that the second leg of the Europa League semifinal against Villarreal, played tonight (Thursday) at the Emirates, is the most important one of Mikel Arteta’s time in charge of the team so far. The whole season seems to be hanging on its result, but it’s actually more than that, for several reasons, some rather obvious, some perhaps less so.

The importance of playing in the Champions League cannot be overstated, either from the financial point of view, or in terms of club reputation. The Gunners have been trying for years, without success, and the Europa League has (too) long been their consolation battleground.

Arsenal not to be distracted by takeover talk – Arteta 0

Manager Mikel Arteta says Arsenal cannot allow themselves to get distracted by recent reports of a potential takeover ahead of the second leg against Villarreal in the Europa League semifinals.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry confirmed earlier this week that Daniel Ek, the co-founder of Spotify, has contacted the Kroenkes with the aim of presenting an offer to buy the club. The bid, believed to be in the region of £1.8 billion, is due to be sent to the current owners in a few days, and Ek is apparently confident, with the full backing of Henry, Patrick Vieira and Denis Bergkamp, that it will be taken into consideration regardless of the Kroenkes’ recent statement that the club is not for sale.

Arsenal’s Premier League run-in 0

The Premier League season is slowly but surely coming to an end and for Arsenal fans, that has to be seen as a blessing. This has been a really poor campaign for the Gunners and while some optimistic supporters will still feel as if the top six is within touching distance, we tend to believe that isn’t the case.

Still, there’s no harm if the club giving it everything they’ve got across their last four league fixtures, which is why we’re here today to take a look at those games and what we can expect to see from Arsenal.

Journalists assess Arsenal sale likelihood 0

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the possibility of Stan and Josh Kroenke, in charge of the Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, selling Arsenal in the near future, particularly after the European Super League project fiasco and the fan protests that followed shortly.

Daniel Ek, co-founder of Spotify, apparently backed by former Arsenal stars Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Denis Bergkamp, caused quite a stir on the subject with his tweet suggesting he would be willing to buy Arsenal FC off the Kroenkes. However, The Athletic journalists David Ornstein and Matt Slater don’t believe that is likely to happen in the near future. The Kroenkes themselves have moved decisively to dismiss any notions of it, reiterating their committment to the club openly and promising a heavy investment in the squad this summer.

Newcastle want Joe Willock permanently 0

Newcastle United are keen on signing Joe Willock, currently on loan at St. James’ Park, permanently this summer, according to a report jointly done by  Chris Waugh and James McNicholas for The Athletic.

The 21-year-old joined the Magpies for the second half of the season with the obvious aim of securing more game-time, a crucial aspect for the development of any young player. So far, he’s made 10 appearances in a black-and-white shirt, all in the Premier League, scoring four vital goals for Steve Bruce’s team.

The bank holiday reset 0

It can so often be easy to get lost in the chaos of what’s happening around the world and we don’t at all blame folks for doing so – especially when our source of joy, Arsenal Football Club, continues to let us down at every available turn.

Still, the Gunners are coming off the back of a strong performance and win over Newcastle United which, in itself, should be enough to create some confidence within the fanbase that they can cause some damage between now and the end of the campaign.
